If you want to make a bigger sheep on the 24 peg loom double everything. ( meaning if you have 4 rows do 8. Also if you are doing an area like the ear double the pegs you use instead of 2 use 4.) Think of it like a recipe when cooking. By doubling everything you will be doubling the size of the animal.  Or you can do adjustments to the goat to create the sheep at a larger size. Just keep in mind you do the wrap and turn  section to half of the loom on the head.
